Hello parents, We had a good sign up meeting tuesday night and there is still room on all of our rides. Please make note that paper work needs to be in our hands before the first rides. We will not accept any day of ride registration. Forms can be printed off by clicking on parent info on the right. Scroll down and click on stuff that sounds relevant. Each jr rider will need a signed medical release, waiver, and code of conduct. Schedules of each ride are also nearby those forms, so go there and print away. The trails are muddy and that will cause us all a little grief soon, but not to worry, DEVO always works out. If weather and mud get in our way, we will just take our program into the summer. Your children will get 8 weeks of riding under their belts. Our main communication is through this site and Annie and Chads email. So please make sure your paperwork has a good email contact for you. Sweet, annie@durangodevo.com for paperwork and mula stuff, and chad@durangodevo.com for program info, rider placement and numerous other things. Please also feel free to contact us at 764-5758. 259-0686 is our home phone and we’d prefer not to use it for DEVO. Have a nice day, Chad

New Zealand is Amazing

  |   Uncategorized

Good day to yall. NZ has been amzing so far. The rides have been spot on. Anne and I ride every day in some place new. Little River, Acaroa, Timaru, Wanaka, and Queensland so far. Epic views and tons of sheep scattering the hillside. With no watch and no clue what day it is, the adventures run into each other. Summer is here now, sorry about that. Anne and I rode in this one trail network the other day that was filled with jumps and stunts, and all kinds of people were shredding them, old and young alike. No wonder not many of us in Durango can boast huge gaps, we have none to boast. DEVO riders should begin to formulate plans on how to get paid to travel the earth and ride. Go to work my friends. For how sweet this semi-big island is, I cannot wait to ride with all of you on the greatest trails on earth. Love Chad

Wilderness Meeting FEB 21 @FLC

  |   Uncategorized

The local interest in this Wilderness plan has been rolling since last months overcrowded meeting at the Durango Rec Center. Letters to the editor in the Herald and Telegraph have labeled this interest as a self centered cyclist concern to question the Draft Plan. All user groups should be concerned and make an attempt to educate themselves on the issue. This is buisness to them and a way of life to us. There is nothing wrong with Wilderness when an area needs to be protected. Protection is not the case here. Please make a point to show up to the meeting and get informed. In the meantime, research like-cases around the country; West Virginia and California are good examples to refer to. There is no Draft Plan option that will work good for our communty. Just remember that this Wilderness plan is just part of a buisness plan landswap. Money is the root of this mess. Ask questions!

Thats my opinion, Chad

The San Juan Public Lands Center is hosting public meetings to  present and discuss specific topics of concern in the Draft Land Management Plan and Draft Environmental Impact Statement for BLM and
 National Forest lands in southwestern Colorado. The Durango meeting
 is: Thursday, February 21, 2008 Fort Lewis College, 6:30 – 8:30 pm FLC Ballroom.

Topics: Inventoried Roadless Areas, Wilderness recommendations, Wild
 and Scenic River recommendations
